I say well done, but I think too much of the meat of the reviews are taken up with blow-by-blow. I like what you write, but I found myself reading the first few sentences, then skimming to the last few. But then that's me, I usually already know the basic plot of a movie, or if I don't I only really want to know if it's good or not. Which is why I started doing my own reviews a while back on myspace. I do the same thing with most newspaper movie reviews, because they're so busy being "professional journalists" that they forget they're supposed to be entertaining and informing us, rather than simply entertaining themselves and showing how smart they are. I mean, seriously, who knows what "denouement" or "mis-en-scene" means? What the **** does "chewing up the scenery" mean? Even if you do know, you gotta admit it's stupid to actually write **** like that in a review for Dumb and Dumber. Anyway, I decided to write short, funny reviews that let you know immediately if the movie sucks or not. In fact, I made it so you don't even have to read the review if you don't want to. I give them titles like, "A Dirty Shame Is Stupid". And I give them a percentage of goodness rather than stars. I felt a movie can be really good, in a sucky way, and only get one star which tells me nothing. So with my reviews, a movie can totally suck, but be rated 75% good. Anyway, I only did a few and since nobody reads them, I sort of stopped. But every now and then I write more. If I thought people were enjoying them, I'd do it every week. Oh well, have a look if you like:
Oh, and your review for The Killer Shrews was wonderful. I keep meaning to go back and review crappy old movies too since I watch enough of them at work.
WHEE! HA HA! OH BOY!
